Not sure I understand, but PowerPoint will accept live hyperlinks, like all
Office apps. They'd still have to click the link at the end to go back, but
I think your idea is better. Open a new window, and even if they lose
interest or it breaks, they've got the original open to go back to. Yeah;
that's it - push it as a usability/marketing feature. You instinctively
provided the right solution already. Go dog go!

Or if they really want this, lemme know and I'll see if the automagic PPS
type file can do this.
